Abortion Story: Cape Town, South Africa
Submitted to Abort73 by a 16-year-old woman on December 3, 2022.
I am a 16 year old girl. Words cannot describe the pain I went through as I did the abortion. I never wanted to do the abortion, but I was coerced into doing it by my ex-boyfriend who afterwards turned his back on me, disgusted that I killed his baby. I wanted to keep my baby, even though I knew it would've broken my mother's heart. To anyone who reads this, don't be coerced into doing something you're not ready for. It's your choice. It's been a month since my abortion, and it's like I’m losing my mind. A day away from suicide.
